We just had a week at the gorgeous La Fonte. It's really well located between San Gimignano and Certaldo (great places to visit) and with easy acces to Florence and Siena. The property itself is really lovely. So well kept and with beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside. The pool is great too and we mostly had it to ourselves... More

We stayed a week at La Fonte with out two daughters and we all fell in love with the place. Heartstoppingly beautiful. Perfect base for visiting Florence, Siena, Volterra, we even ventured as far south as Pitigliano and Saturnia. Certaldo, the nearest village, is enchanting, as is the surrounding countryside. The secluded pool, framed by oleander, is the perfect antidote... More

We had 3 wonderful days at La Fonte. Maria was a wonderful host. The property and rooms were spacious, clean and well looked after. The pool was an added benefit for the end of a hot day touring. We will certainly return on our next visit to Tuscany.

Four of us recently shared the 2 bedroom apartment Rosmarino for 4 nights. One of the bedrooms has doors leading to the beautiful terrace, and you can also access this from outside the apartment. The bedrooms are very large - one with double bed, the other with two singles (leading to terrace) and each room as it's own bathroom attached.... More

We just returned from another lovely visit to La Fonte, and once again, Maria made everything so lovely for us. We love to sit out on the patio with views of the Tuscan countryside. A nice bottle of wine, some freshly baked bread, and cheese from the nearby co-op, and we have own own little picnic with this incredible view.... More

We had several stays with Maria, the hostess at La Fonte, as well in the apartments on the first floor as in the apartment Rosmarin on the ground floor. Each one is different, but we enjoyed staying in every one of them. The last one was the ground apartment. It has a nice terrace overviewing the valley behind La Fonte.... More

I stayed at La Fonte with my husband and another couple in a two bedroom two bath apartment on the second floor. We could not have been happier. From the moment we arrived until we left we were amazed at what a wonderful place we had found. The grounds are beautiful with views of the Tuscan hill side. We traveled... More

La Fonte is an absolute gem for many reasons. First off, Maria is fantastic - very helpful and accomodating in everything we needed/wanted. You couldn't ask for a better hostess - friendly, always upbeat, helpful, and perfect English too! What a great spot in Tuscany as a home base to take in every town in the area. Four of us... More

It's hot, really hot in August in Tuscany. But if you can brave the heat, La Fonte is perfect. Maria the owner lives on site and is a mine of useful information, fluent English speaker. The rooms are very very comfortable and well equipped. The pool is great, location perfect. We stayed with children aged 10 and 8 and it... More
